Optimistic October / UN OCTUBRE CON OPTIMISMO

Life is far from perfect, but there are lots of reasons for optimism. Setting positive goals for the future gives our lives a sense of direction and purpose. And although we face many challenges there are also lots of reasons to stay hopeful. By consciously choosing our priorities we can overcome issues, make progress and focus on what really matters.


La vida está lejos de ser perfecta, pero hay muchas razones para el optimismo. Establecer metas positivas para el futuro le da a nuestra vida un sentido de dirección y propósito. Y aunque enfrentamos muchos desafíos, también hay muchas razones para mantener la esperanza. Al elegir conscientemente nuestras prioridades, podemos superar los problemas, avanzar y enfocarnos en lo que realmente importa.

Student-Led Goal Setting Conference

On Wednesday, October 13th from 4:00 - 8:00 pm and Thursday, October 14th from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm Baker Prairie will be holding virtual student led goal setting conferences with students, parents/guardians and your student’s advisory teacher through ZOOM. In this conference, your student will explain some of the goals they have set for this year and some of the challenges they may face in reaching those goals. Early in the year is a great time to make sure parents/guardians and teachers are all aligned and ready to provide guidance and support. Your advisory teacher will also be able to let you know about Baker Prairie resources that will help your student be successful. Your student’s Advisory teacher will be reaching out through email with information for you to sign up for you 15 time slot. Thank you for taking the time to attend this meeting.

NEW CANBY AREA Bus Transportation

Did you know that there is a FREE Canby Loop bus? Students can ride the bus to school for FREE. There are many stops. Here are a few streets where there are stops: 13th, Territorial, and Township. Please use the attached link for more information and bus stops and times.

Attendance/Sick Students/Appointments

We have processes in place to help us track students in the event of illness or an early departure from school. If a student is sick during class, they should let their teacher know and then go to the main office. Our staff will take them to the health room and check them out and contact the family for pick up if needed. If a student needs to be excused for an appointment or any other reason, please notify our main office at 503.263.7170 as soon as possible. When you arrive at the school please call and we will call your student down. This allows the student to not miss instruction while waiting in the office.
